Now on to your Nashdate.

Nash and I did some old school route work today, as we had not done any pure route work in a few days, as all of our walks had us heading somewhere. I like doing pure route work because I can really concentrate on how we are working together, as I am not in a rush to get somewhere. Nash did a fantastic job with his work today, and had very minimal sniffing distractions which was very pleasant, as sniffing everything in NYC seems to be the only thing that gets a little annoying about the little fella.

I liked to give a shout out to Aunt Lona and Uncle Donny for picking up Nash a big bag of his lamb and rice, as it does get to be tiresome picking up five pound bags at a time. They also got Nash a stuffed animal that his cousin Brinkley has, well, that only lasted about five minutes, as Nash ripped it. Its too bad because he really enjoyed playing with it, not sure if there are any stuffed animals out there for dogs with no stuffing inside. It is strange that such a friendly dog plays so violently with his toys. I guess that is why he is the Toyminator.

    A double shout out to Lona and Donny for getting food for my granddoggie, Nash. I’ll look for toyminator toys but doubt any are tough enough.

    Hi Brian. There are, indeed dog toys without stuffing. They are called skinneez. You can get them online (e.g. http://www.drsfostersmith.com/product/prod_display.cfm?pcatid=18869) They still have squeakers, which my dogs still seem to want to surgically remove, but they do seem to last longer than the the stuffed toys. I wish I could make Laugh for Sight, but making it to the city from upstate NY on a Monday night just really ain’t gonna happen. Maybe you could make a DVD for extra fundraising!

    Hi Robbin,

    Thanks for the link, I will have to check it out. Unfortunately, we cannot tape the entire benefit, as we would need a lot of people to sign off on it, and it is very difficult to just get the comedians to donate their time to perform, taping them opens up a lot of legal issues, so unfortunately we are not there yet.
